That sounds kind of cool to me. I may have to get a Facepalm account.

Eh, I still think the woman shaking her infant child to death when it kept crying while she was trying to play farmville is the worst facebook story to date.

What, no Hero tag for this Mom trying to rid the world of an internet troll?

What did he write? He's 14. Let's guess hormones played a part. Or a desire for attention.
Either way, chokey mom needs to sit in a cell overnight, because unless the dude called for the actual death of her daughter, she's in the wrong.

"The police report did not say exactly what the boy said on Facebook."

The kid probably had it coming.

No kidding, she should have done the sensible thing: Sue the 14 y/o's parents, his school, the computer or phone manufacturer, Facebook, and Mark Zuckerberg's new wife.

Man, high school was crappy enough in the old days when there wasn't Facebook. I'm glad I'm not a kid these days.

Last time I choked a 14 year old boy,
I showed my son naked pictures of his mother.

If this is true you belong in jail.

Not for corrupting a minor. EVERY 14 year old boy looks at naked ladies. You belong in jail for child endangerment. That poor kid could have DIED.

"Oh wow. She's hot. Nice tits. Round ass. Mom's face. Mom's face? Wait a minute. AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA- *head asplode*

Mom told the press, back in 2007, "My daughter will choke me..." Guess mom's astrology ain't so good.

I hear that Facebook will get into the mobile computing space by buying out that division from H-P. It will be called FacePalm.com.

He said "Your mother's so stupid, she bought 1,000 shares of Facebook stock at $42 dollars a share!"

"Quadecap Mom" doesn't have quite the same ring to it.

Favorite Quotations
The aim of education should be to teach us rather how to think, than what to think - rather to improve our minds, so as to enable us to think for ourselves, than to load the memory with the thoughts of other men

How's that rational thought working out?

Come on.. anyone who has been to a movie theater or mall on a Friday night can empathize with this lady..

I have better impulse control but have been very close at times...
 
2012-05-30 01:11:16 AM  
Puetz said Piscitella claimed she touched the boy's neck accidentally, but a witness and surveillance from one of the mall stores confirmed the teen's version.

She actually thought that line would work as a defense? lulz...

Little snot probably had it comin' though.

Stupid internetz filled with whippersnapping snots.

I find it strange that journalists so often confuse "choke" with "strangle". Choke is what happens when you get something lodged inside your throat.

This is serious cuz you never recover from a choke.

Exactly. The ONE good thing that Facebook has is that you can block anyone and you won't see their posts nor will they see yours. I don't have an ignore list on here, but I have a few people blocked there simply because they are idiots.
 
2012-05-30 10:09:27 AM  
it must suck to be a kid these days and have parents who actually don't want you to go on Facebook. It's like the "norm" now to go on it and basically open yourself up to complete ridicule because it's like you can't escape from the teasing that goes on in school anymore since it's basically 24/7.

I don't have any kids yet but seriously I freak out that my relatives are on it, and they're 13 years old.

If their parents said "no account for you", it's like saying "you don't get to talk to your friends at all or stay 'in the loop' with everyone".

which sucks because seriously Facebook is a cancer to children. I watched the "Boston loses in Overtime after Ward [a black guy] scores" NHL Twitter explosion with interest and just eye-opening sadness.

these kids in middle and high school just spouting their first thoughts online, having crap blow up in their face, and not able to handle what was going on.

However, the ones who closed their twitter accounts or apologized and deleted tweets were better than the kids who were just spouting off against anyone who said anything to them.

Scares me to death sometimes that these children (and they are children by all legal definitions) are just taking to the internet in a constant barrage of postings that I can only imagine I'd be killing them over if they were my child.

I picture my relatives doing these posts and 'mental diarrhea' and imagine their parents just burning the house down.
